Strawberry-Banana Oatmeal Smoothie

So I have been seeing a lot of neat recipes floating around on facebook lately and you know me, I HAVE to try it at least once if it looks good and isn’t too dependent on processed foods.  So here is my:

     Strawberry-Banana Oatmeal Smoothie

  • 1/4 c uncooked old fashioned rolled oats
  • 1 1/2 t dried chia seeds
  • 3/4 c almond milk
  • 1/4 c orange juice (I used pineapple juice in this picture b/c SOMEBODY drank the oj)
  • 1/4 c yogurt (I use organic, hormone, anti-biotic free)
  • 1/2 c fresh sliced strawberries
  • 1/2 c fresh sliced bananas
  • 1/2 t vanilla extract
  • 2 t honey (I use local/raw)

In blender add your oats and chia seeds. Blend on high until texture of flour.  Add milk and juice to blender and blend well making sure to get the oats and chia up into the mixture with a spoon or spatula.  Add yogurt and blend.  Add strawberries and bananas, then blend.  Add vanilla and honey and blend on high until desired smoothness is obtained.  Transfer into jar and refrigerate overnight.  Will keep in fridge for 2-3 days. Shake before drinking.
